Dear Family and Friends,
I am thrilled to be participating in this year’s 8th Annual “Boca’s Ballroom Battle,” THE charity event of the summer!
It is a “Dancing With The Stars” style fundraiser between 8 members of our community dancing to win the Mirror Ball trophy. I can win it by raising the most money from your donations, whether large or small, for The George Snow Scholarship Fund. This South Florida charity grants college scholarships and assistance to the most deserving students from Palm Beach County that would not have otherwise the opportunity to attend college.
You heard me correctly….I am DANCING for your donations! Starting this week, I will be taking group and private lessons to learn a ballroom dance that I will perform in front of 800 people on August 28th. I will train all summer long and you can watch my progress on my video link, along with donating on the same website.
You can help these deserving students, and me, by making a tax-deductible donation, placing an ad in the program, or purchasing a table of 10. Please check out the awesome sponsorship opportunities available! Remember, over 800 people will be at the Boca Raton Hotel and Resort to watch this competition. Go to www.ballroombattle.com and find my name in the dancers section to donate, buy a table, ad or sponsorship.
I am calling on all of my family, friends and colleagues to help me raise a minimum of $25,000.00. No amount is too small when it comes to helping worthy students make their college dreams come true. Every dollar is greatly needed and appreciated; I thank you in advance for your support.
Sponsorships: Please check the website under Sponsorship Opportunities.
Donations: www.ballroombattle.com. Click on “Donate To Your Favorite Dancer,” that’s me!
I have reserved 3 tables for individual couples whom are interested in coming to the show to watch me dance and cheer me on! If you are interested in seats, let me know as soon as possible! All donations, tickets, tables,and sponsorships will go toward my fundraising goals and are fully tax-deductible.
Please help me to make these dreams come true. Together we can make a difference in these children’s futures, right here at home!
Please contact me if you have any questions at all!
When you get the choice to sit it out or dance….
I hope you dance,
Wendy Sadusky is the essence of Boca Raton. As a mother, interior designer, friend, and philanthropist, she embodies the quintessential Boca desire to do good, and look good while doing it.
Education is incredibly important to Wendy. She knows that it has the ability to change a person’s life, and has always strived to make that a real possibility for students, whether by ‘educationally adopting’ children in foreign countries, or supporting international educational mission trips.
Both she and her husband were the first in their families to attend and graduate a 4-year university. In addition to an athletic scholarship for Division 1 gymnastics, Wendy’s blue-collar father helped her attend college at the University of Rhode Island where she graduated with a career in interior design. She knows that financial ability is not always present, and wants to help others achieve their educational goals.
Almost 21 years ago, Wendy decided to put her career aside in order raise her children and support her husband in his demanding career. This gave her time to contribute to the community, much of which was done through every school her children attended.
Whether in Florida or Rhode Island, she volunteered by teaching music, chairing auctions, decorating for school auctions, dances, and fashion shows, designing, building and painting sets for school plays and even directing a school play! (By happenstance, of course). Wendy has made a point to educate her three children on the values of philanthropy.
Heather, her eldest, graduated FSU Honors College Magna Cum Laude and currently works in Denver. Her son Alex attends Penn State and participates in THON every year, raising millions of dollars for childhood cancer through a dance marathon. Her youngest, Olivia, is a high school junior at PJPIIHS and volunteers yearly with TOPS soccer.
With that in mind, Wendy is looking forward to raising money in an action-packed way for deserving students that don’t have the financial ability. She believes education is the stepping-stone to a better life, a better future, a better community and a better world, and looks forward to the challenge.
P.S. Despite being a Division 1 all around college gymnast, Wendy claims she is not as coordinated on the dance floor as she was on the balance beam!
